Biotics Cytozyme-AD supports the adrenal glands.
Every person has two adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are not, as the name would suggest, organs that assist in the functioning of the kidneys. In essence, they have hardly anything to do with the functioning of the kidney.
Adrenal glands look like slightly flattened fleshy yellowish organs about the size of the last phalanx of your thumb. The adrenal glands each weigh about 5 grams and are located on top of a fat layer on the kidneys. Each adrenal gland is made up of two parts, the bark or exterior (cortex) and the core or adrenal medulla (medulla). The bark comprises 90% by weight (a little more than 4 grams) and the pith about 10% (a little less than 1 gram).
Although small in size, the adrenal cortex makes three very important hormones: cortisol, aldosterone and androgens. These hormones are also called steroids. The adrenal medulla produces cathecholamines. These are substances that play a role in signal transmission in the nervous system (or neurotransmitters), such as (nor) adrenaline and dopamine.
